Cavernoma

Cavernoma

Cavernomas are clusters of abnormal, leaky blood vessels that are found in many places in the body.  This PSP, initiated by Cavernoma Alliance UK, concentrated on identifying and prioritising research priorities around cavernomas found in the brain, also known as cerebral cavernous malformations (CCMs), and spinal cord (the central nervous system).  These may cause a range of neurological symptoms including stroke and epileptic seizures. 

The Cavernoma PSP Top 10 was published in November 2015.
